leverage they hold on this entire debate. we've heard president obama say he's not going to play the same game he played in 2011 saying they got taken as hostages in a situation and debate that ends up hurting the u.s. economy. president obama says he doesn't want to do that again and it will be interesting to see how he maneuvers because congress will end upholding a vote and saying that congress no longer has the power on raising the debt limit. that remains to be seen and it will be interesting to see what president obama says when he's asked a question like that. >> mark, we'll come back to you later. joining me also from d.c., david nabbing murrah of "the washington post. this won't be confusing at all. >> no way. >> david nakamura, we'll start with you. a lot of talk about progress in the last 24 hours. as an example, let me quote "the new york times." i have a positive feeling now. this is senator kay bailey hutchison, republican of texas who said a burst of a deal talk broke out as soon as they left the capitol. harry reid was sounding the death knell. what happened yeste

or with his upcoming appearance, has that really given president obama the leverage in this debate? >> i certainly think it has helped because what this president has been good at i think throughout his tenure through the white house and definitely through the campaign is making the issues that he is fighting for and that he has been talking about relevant to everyday americans. and he has been asking for those same americans to make their voices heard with their congressional leaders. and as we all know, there is no one more important to congressional leaders than their own constituents back home. and so when the president asked constituents to let congressional leaders know what it's going to mean to them if their taxes rise on january 1, then leaders are going to hear from their constituents back home. i think that's a very powerful piece of pressure that washington actually does respond it. so i think he has been very adepartment at that. i think it is -- adept at that. i think it is something that helped him through his first term and will help through his second term, as well

obama is expected to sign it. if you are a civil liberties guy, there was good news and bad news in this debate. the good news is that there were a bunch of privacy amendments, including one from democratic senator ron wyden of oregon. his amendment would have required the head of the country's spy agencies to tell congress when americans accidentally got spied on. right now, we have no way of knowing how often that happens. also, republican senator rand paul of kentucky, he wanted to force the government to get a warrant to read our e-mails and other electronic communications. for privacy advocates, these amends were the good news. the bad news, the democratic-controlled senate killed every single one of those amendments. killed them dead. they voted them all down. and today the once-controversial warrantless wiretapping bill was extended for another five years, and amazingly, almost nobody seems to have noticed. we used to fight about this tough. the whole reason fisa needs congressional reauthorization every few years is that we are supposed to reassess it, debate it, have a big

offering you 250. are you going to take it or leave it. that's hard ball politics. that's what obama is doing now. he's not ceding power. he's letting them haggle over the threshold and he's ending this argument and this debate. >> all right, gentlemen. good discussion. great to have you both on. guys, stick around -- oh, they're coming back. that's right. they're part of the fiscal cliff power panel. >>> let's turn to the market sell-off. the dow going down 158 pointis and want you to see the after-market numbers and the futures, something called the futures continue to trade and they suggest that if the dow jones industrial average were to open right now it would be down 315 points. the nasdaq would be down a whopping 51 and the s&p 500 down 39. here now is larry glazer from the mayflower advisers and director at tjm institutional services. guys, when we open on monday, is it going to look that bad? jim? >> it depends on what happens. this is the way uncertainty works, but, you know, i thought for a month that one of two things was possible, one that we go over the cliff and the repub

affordable care act -- obamacare if you will -- he bombed in the first debate. voters saw a different from the than the candidate portrayed in the ad, but then there was a victory mark. >> the obama campaign was a brilliant, disciplined campaign. it had a very narrow route to victory, and it proceeded to follow it with incredible discipline and sense of direction, and they raised to a different level the organizational imperative in politics. the 2004 bush campaign had been good, but remember this -- five of the last six elections, the republicans have failed to win the popular vote. mitt romney is in a succession. he is not an anomaly. >> the main reason for mitt romney's defeat, given those problems the president had. >> i do think if you had asked people at the end of 2011, the middle of 2011, it looked as if it were a slam-dunk for republicans. one of the reasons we are at this clip is that the republican resolution of the debt crisis in august 2011 was under the tacit assumption that they would control the white house, so who cares about everything stacked against them? i think the ma

economic system. either one of them has the slightest interest in debating it, let alone fundamentally changing it. and that is, therefore, fine. for those who run the society it then becomes a coin toss. do we like mr. romney, mr. obama, prefer the republicans and the democrats. for the mass of people sent the system cannot be debated because everyone agrees, then we focus elsewhere on things like whether you can have a gun in the back of your truck or whether you can approve of being marriage or a whole host of other issues whose importance on not disputing, but are issues that get us away from this thorny problem of how the economics and politics are articulated where they're is a desire of those who run the society that that simply be ruled out of order. >> the corporations that dominate what most people in this country see here, perfecting the art of propaganda and manufacturing consent well simultaneously criminalizing dissent. i want you to talk about the very origins of this which could be traced to the much revered and in my view much overrated founding fathers,
